The Waldorf-Astoria Jerusalem announces the official opening of its latest culinary offering: The Garden Terrace. Located on the rooftop of the historic restored building, the Garden Terrace takes advantage of the cool air of Jerusalem’s evenings while ensuring a sense of quiet seclusion just above the city’s downtown areas.
Featuring a fully stocked bar with a newly designed cocktail menu and an internationally gathered cigar collection available to guests, the menu for the Garden Terrace has been designed by the hotel’s executive chef Itzik Barak, presenting a wide variety of Mediterranean-inspired tapas dishes.
Diners are invited to select from a range of dishes–from veal spareribs to fresh fish seviche and Chef Barak’s take on traditional meatballs which are battered in a beer-infused tempura and served with pepper cream. The all-kosher menu relies on the freshest ingredients and highest-quality meats and fish all available to be combined with fine wines, liquors, and drinks mixed to order.
Designing the menu and the overall experience has been a project months in the making with the goal of making the Garden Terrace a sought-after location in Jerusalem for the ideal evening of relaxation.
The Waldorf-Astoria Jerusalem has already assumed a reputation as one of the world’s best luxury hotels, including being named as the top hotel in the Middle East by readers of CondÃ© Nast Traveler magazine. The Garden Terrace is the third restaurant located in the hotel alongside the Palace and the Kings Court, both of which have received acclaim for introducing a new style of dining to Jerusalem.
“The Garden Terrace introduces a new level of culture to the city that puts delicious food and drink at the forefront, all presented in a setting that is uniquely Jerusalem,” says Guy Klaiman, general manager of the Waldorf-Astoria Jerusalem. “We look forward to seeing this quickly becoming a landmark to be appreciated by anyone looking for a quality and optimally enjoyable evening.”
The Garden Terrace at the Waldorf-Astoria Jerusalem is open Sunday—Thursday 5:30—11:00 p.m. For advance reservations (recommended) please call 02-5423333.Â v
